Warning people to avoid sunshine causes more harm than good; lack of sunshine responsible for many diseases, says research

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Warning people to stay away from natural sunshine is doing far more harm than good, says a new report by the U.K.-based Health Research Forum. People actually need to sunbathe daily in order to be healthy, the report says, and this conclusion is based on a review of hundreds of scientific papers.

Lack of sunlight causes a horrifying list of chronic diseases like prostate cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis, schizophrenia, and heart disease. Avoiding sunlight also causes out-of-control carbohydrate cravings due to the influence of sunlight on hormones like melatonin and serotonin.

Clearly, telling people to avoid sunlight and wear sunscreen is bad medical advice, yet the myth persists, especially in the United States where the population is been programmed to fear the sun. The common belief that "the sun causes cancer" is, in fact, responsible for causing more cancer than ever.

Exposure to natural sunlight, it turns out, is the primary method by which the human body generates vitamin D stores. Without vitamin D, people are subject to all the diseases listed above (and many more). But with ample sunlight, vitamin D goes to work in the body regulating normal physiological function and restoring a person's natural health. Sunlight is the primary way to get vitamin D, although taking certain nutritional supplements -- like cod liver oil -- can also help.

Folks, it's time to drop the ridiculous myth of western medicine that sunlight causes cancer. If anything, people need to get out more and expose more skin to the healing rays of the sun. Our sun is a powerful healer, and it is a remarkable example of the harmful character of western medicine that so many doctors still tell their patients to avoid natural sunlight.

Once again, the sun is absolutely free. You can prevent and even cure prostate cancer, breast cancer, and many other diseases by simply stepping outside your door every day and soaking up the 100% free healing treatment from the sun. It's called phototherapy, and it's powerful medicine. It's also not available as a prescription.
